Biz Kid$ - Let's Talk About Money
Let's Talk About Money:
Youth Financial Literacy
Financial Literacy for Kids
Studies show most parents don't talk about money with their children and teachers don't spend a whole lot of class time on basic financial concepts or vocabulary. With April being Financial Literacy Month, WXXI and its financial literacy series for kids, Biz Kid$, are proud to present a live, one-hour special focused on the importance of economic education among youth.
